I'm certain I don't understand 1% of the laws and properties of magnetism. I decided to brush up with some quick 'n' magnety reading here, here, and here. It's beyond me. If it weren't 4:30 AM (and if there weren't so many equations riddled with greek letters) perhaps I could do a smidgen better, but I would still be woefully unlearned. Now, I will appreciate magnets as a layman. I do know that in our 21st century lives it is too easy to be un-amazed by the tiny portions of God's oeuvre that the scientific man has "decoded." How little we know! When I really look, I can see signs of an infinite intellect in the smallest of things. I hope we will all look more intently.
